Jesus Wept (Jésus pleura)


Published 1886
Topics art, European Art


Following the death of his friend Lazarus, Jesus goes to Bethany to comfort Martha and Mary Magdalene for a loss that he also felt keenly. Both women lament that Jesus was absent when Lazarus took ill, knowing that he would have prevented the death with his healing powers. Affected by the loss, Jesus weeps.

Led to the darkened tomb of Lazarus, Jesus commands the removal of the stone covering the opening and, after a prayer to God, resurrects the dead man before witnesses who gasp in astonishment.
